For the first time, our NUS President was new to school in Year 12
The NUS Committee are the Sixth Form’s organising group. Without them, all sorts of important social events (for example, mixer events, the Transition and Induction Days mixer, Year 13 Prom) simply would not happen. They are also integral in assisting at official school events, and you will always find a representative in evidence at Year 12 and 13 Consultation Afternoons, the Post-16 Open Evening as well as the many Information Evenings that we host as a school for the benefit of our Post-16 students and their parents.
The Committee is voted for by both Year 12 students and staff, and this year’s competition was as fiercely contested as ever. Following an introductory assembly, students were asked to apply, and those that did were then invited to detail their “manifestos” at Year 12 assembly on Monday 3rd July. Following the vote on July 6th, I am delighted to announce that the Committee for 2017-18 will be (from left above) Adia Quiggin, Hannah Reed, Joe Radford, Tadhg Hussey (President) and Tyra Bhaggan (not pictured). It is an outstanding team who I am sure will represent their peers and the school well. It says everything about the inclusive nature of our Post-16 that a student who was new to school in September 2016 has managed to make such a huge impression on staff and peers and become the NUS President less than a year later. Well done to all of our Committee members – we very much look forward to working with them in the near future.
